THE LOCATION New Street is both central and convenient whilst being tucked away and quiet - a favoured little road and a beautiful mix of Grade II listed Georgian stone houses. The town is a historic and ancient market town with an active community and excellent everyday facilities including a nursery, primary and secondary schools. The town enjoys good communication with Falmouth via its bus service and train station, which links to Truro city and mainline Paddington.
Penryn is enjoying something of a renaissance witnessed in the regeneration and development of Penryn's inner Harbour area providing riverside accommodation and extensive and exciting dining options. Penryn Campus is occupied by both Falmouth and Exeter Universities sharing buildings, facilities and services as part of the combined universities in Cornwall project; this recent transition into a University town is creating a real 'buzz' for the area. Falmouth town (approximately 2 miles) provides comprehensive shopping, schooling, business and leisure facilities and was recently voted 'the best place to live in the South West' in the prestigious Sunday Times guide.
THE PROPERTY This double fronted prominent townhouse is a really rather special proposition that we are delighted to show you. A home with real curb appeal and handsome exterior which doesn't disappoint once inside either.
The accommodation is set across three storeys with the detailed architrave front door providing access in to a grand entrance hallway which in turn leads to the wonderful open staircase rising and lowering to the two further levels of the house. On the ground floor is a cosy lounge with open fireplace with folding doors providing a separate area for a study/home office. To the other side of the house is a generous dining and family room located next to the fully fitted modern kitchen. The first floor comprises three bedrooms, two large doubles and a small double or good sized single, the master bedroom enjoying the use of a recently fitted en-suite and with a separate bathroom. The lower level is a delight, the stairs opening out on to a recently finished hard wood and high quality orangery which is a perfect place to enjoy the outside from within. Further down two shallow steps from this room there are four doorways separating what will have once been a large cellar - now a utility, downstairs WC, large store room/workshop with incredibly useful direct access back to the road, smaller store room and large room currently utilised as a games room or providing a fourth bedroom if desired.
All is beautifully presented, maintaining the wealth of character that you would expect from a grand house such as this including wodden floorboards, high skirting, picture rails, sash multi-pane windows, arched recesses, fireplaces and high ceilings all to name a few whilst enjoying the modern specification of central heating powered by a Worcester gas combination boiler.
The outside area to the rear is a magnificent space - a walled garden offering a huge amount of privacy and tranquility even despite this town centre location. Double opening doors open from the orangery to a lawn with established planted fern beds, pebbled seating area and a greenhouse to the corner whilst a decked seating area immediately adjacent to the rear provides a perfect place to enjoying al-fresco dining in the evening sun.
9 New Street is one not to be missed, opportunities like this don't come along very often and we wholeheartedly recommend a viewing without any hesitation, stunning!
